"washington post" obama ruse. it's not that different from what rubio's group is talking about. but republicans can slam obama's plan as some sort of kenyan socialist inspired abdication of sovereignty. >> that's a good one. will laugh at that a week. >> they can blast the provisions on boarder security as laughable. they can describe the absence of a real plan for reforming the legal immigration process as slapdash or unserious or whatever they want to call it. so if the president really wants immigration reform to pass one of the most helpful things he could do is put out his own plan as decoy to draw republican fire while the senate works on bipartisan consensus, which looks suspiciously like what just happened. >> i said when rubio went on fox and other shows,it was a kabuki dance. marco rubio's plan is a great plan, look what he's doing and ignored he's doing it at 95% of what the president is doing. i'm fine. whatever gets you through the night, awesome. but let us not pretend that one of these plans is much different than others because it's just not. >> no, it's not. it's no
